Poetry Forms Easily Explained - a work of Bianca with additions by kansaspoet
|Here we go, in 2007 I am starting the fifth year of my Poetry studies. This time I am adding the Acrostic Monorhyme.
The fun with a monorhyme is that every line ends in the same rhyme - short: a/a/a/a/a etc. Usually monorhymes have a comic note. Acrostic monorhymes are having a twist - the first letters of every sentence form a word, and the rhyme scheme is a/a/a/a/a etc throughout the poem.
More for the fun, than for the need
Increasing or decreasing stitches with speed
Toe-up or cuff down socks for people with greed
They’re ready to warm another one’s feet
Eventually I am done, there’s no fun indeed
Nothing for mom, to warm her… oh read
She’s knitting mittens in mohair and tweed!
